The talent from Twentieth Century Fox’s upcoming Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs feature film will reprise their roles in the upcoming video game from Activision). The game, like the movie, features the voices of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Queen Latifah and Josh Peck as members of an unlikely herd of prehistoric pals on a rescue mission across the tundra and beyond as they meet new friends and discover a mysterious world teeming with lush vegetation and fierce dinosaurs.
For the first time in an Ice Age game, players take on the roles of multiple characters such as big-hearted Manny the mammoth (Romano), the earnest but goofy Sid the sloth (Leguizamo), Diego the saber-toothed tiger, fan favorite Scrat and more. Gamers also get gameplay tips from the wacky possum duo, Crash and Eddie (Peck), and Ellie the mammoth (Latifah). Each character features its own strengths and abilities, resulting in a wide variety of gameplay experiences as players work through more than 15 action-packed levels. Players can also team up with friends and family in eight competitive multiplayer mini-games, another first for the game franchise.
The Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs video game is being developed by Eurocom for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii console systems. A Nintendo DS handheld version is also in development.
